Move to newsstand big mistake
I loved your old stand-alone Washington Post app. First thing I opened on my iPad. Your integration with apple's newsstand was a big step in the WRONG direction.

Sudoku and Crossword puzzles
I am hoping that this update, or one in the near future, will make it possible to fill out the crossword puzzle and the Sudoku on my iPad. It is frustrating that so far, I can see these puzzles, but cannot access them from the app. Other than that, I like the Washington Post app for iPad. My rating would be much higher if I could work on the puzzles I mention in this review.

Really Liking the Full Page Read of The Post
I like the way you can alternate between full page read and article reading. Nice job Post!

Feels Incomplete
Why does the Post still download a picture of the print edition? Why does the print edition have more news articles than the digital edition? Washington Post, we expect much better from you. Your content in the digital edition is sparse. As it stands now, if you charged for the content I wouldn't subscribe. You have a lot of work to do to catch up with nytimes, wsj, zite, etc.

It STILL won't work offline!!!!
I was happy to read that version 2 had apparently fixed the offline reading problem, but didn't anyone test drive version 2 before they released it? I want the Post to succeed and I'm willing to pay for its news. But I won't pay if they can't even get the basics right. The NY Times and WSJ are all readable offline. Why can't the Post figure it out? Unless and until they do, I'm sticking with just the NY Times.

The Most Complete Newspaper App
The combination of the print version as well as the digital app is the best implementation of a newspaper app that I've seen. I also follow the Baltimore Sun which makes the print version available separately to their digital subscribers but you're required to access it outside the app by web browser if you want to read it. The way the Post does it is ideal for me as I can read the main stories I'm interested in through the digital app and then quickly scan the print pages to see anything I might have missed or other sections such as comics, crossword, etc. I did have the problem mentioned by some of the digital content being blank when I launched the app even though the print version was visible. I had to delete the app and then re-download it to get past the problem. If this doesn't recur I would probably make this a five star app.
